The New South Project investigates the ways that identity and place are affected by the economic and technological changes taking place within specific regions of the global south such as, South Central Asia and the southern United States. Through the use of photography, digital mapping technology and short film animations, The New South Project makes transnational comparisons that are crucial for understanding the cultural and geographical impact of globalization on some of the most disadvantaged regions of the world.
Each geographic location in The New South Project faces many challenges due to globalization some of which include, environmental degradation, displacement and political instability. This project began in Bangalore, India, known as the Silicone Valley of India, and has grown to include the deep south of the Unites States and focuses on four common themes that evolved while photographing; Expansion, Cultivated Spaces, Oil and Water.
